, requiring congress to not spend more than it makes, than it takes in in taxes. if you call taxation making money, but it can't spend more than it takes in. any traction on that? >> yeah. this is an idea, an old idea, whose time has timely come, and, you know, as polls show about 75% of all americans support this idea, most of the state legislatures operate the same way, and we need to do this because we need permanent structural spending reform so that we don't find ourselves back in the same position every six to 18 months in raising the debt limit. >> limit spending to 18% of the gross national product, 18%. right now, it's a rate of 23%. we're looking at some of the other things that you would do. you want a historical average of total federal receipts so congress is only run a deficit, increase taxes, or increase debt if agreed upon by a two-thirds vote. i like how it sounds, but it doesn't sound like you can get other politicians to agree to it? >> rome was not build in a day. it's in the a sell yet, but we have support in the senate for the idea of a balanced budget amendment. the la

. when i came into office the governor and general assembly without my support passed a large income tax increase here in the january of twe ven. the sad thing we're now two years into the income tax increase and they raised money and not respond to the problem. i think this year, this spring session of the general assembly it will finally come home to reality. not only downgrades, moody's, fitch and standard have eight watches, warnings or downgrades since the income tax increase has gone into effect. what comes next the fiscal year fourth four, natural revenue growth from illinois coming from sales tax, gaming without tax increases is $600 million. but the reality of the amount of increased payments into the public pension systems is $945 million. i think they will have to deal with this $345 million spread. reality is --. melissa: dan, i applaud your optimism you think this will finally be the come to jesus moment where they realize there is huge problem but i don't know that is necessarily the case because we see california going down the same road. seems like politicians almost neve

tax filing day, but the date by which congress has promised to adopt a budget resolution. they've even this time staked their pay on it, agreeing to reach a deal or face suspension of their paychecks until they reach a deal. that might just be enough of a carrot to present a budget that takes on our ballooning deficit. but the battle over that deficit make that recent battle over tax hikes for the rich seem like a friendly game of badminton. big spending cuts are needed and they will hit americans where it hurts. health care, medicare, social security. president obama emboldened by his re-election has already drawn his so-called line in the sand. now, republicans have to be the proverbial. come to the proverbial table. perhaps the most powerful republican in washington eric cantor from virginia says he and his fellow republican congressman will have a plan and they are ready to deal. >> i think it's important that we be here as members of the u.s. congress, the six of us who are here really interested in the discussion about the global economy. obviously, the u.s. economy is still a gl
of people paying slightly higher taxes. one of the things going on with uncertainty coming up on may 18th and how we deal with the debt ceiling. the potential for the federal government to shut down. i think many people underestimate the significance of the federal government as a part of, you know, what drives the u.s. economy. melissa: so what could they be doing you think to make things better? what could turn things around from a trucking perspective? >> i think in recent history, anytime our leaders here in washington make, you know, get a decision made, even if it is not what everybody likes or agrees with, the more certainty there is in the business community, the more likely we are to see investment and people making plans about moving forward. i mean i think it is too early to tell how consumer sentiment and consumer behavior is going to be impacted by the, by the tax increases. i mean everybody saw the 2% hit on the payroll tax expiration, what, a little less than 1% on the health care costs. so, we just don't know yet. that impacts us directly because we move a the of retail go
, but then eventually you implemented some 100 different taxes. how did that not slow down the growth you had finally gotten? >> when you are taking a nation through a profound crisis, and although we are now a cold, we should not forget it has created enormous hardships in iceland for the families who lost many of them their houses, some of them their entire savings. so if you're going to bring a nation through a profound crisis like this on the road to recovery, you have to enable them in the system come you have to empower them, you have to make them realize that everybody is paying the consequences. into the system in this way. liz: does it surprise you 48% of americans don't pay at least important chunk of the taxes? >> yes, to some extent it does. we have to realize if our democracy is going to have a prolonged crisis like this, you have to instigate the political process in such a way that people are willing to bear the burden and pay the sacrifices. so what we did was not only to go against the traditional view of the fiscal policies, the tax policies of the welfare state, we introduced curre
beverages. liz: boy, we have a president who was reelected, we've got all kinds of tax changes, the payroll tax cut has been eliminated. we got through one part of the fiscal cliff, now we're looking at the debt ceiling. which one of those, to you as a business leader, matters the most, affects business the most? >> i think, um, what matters the most is providing clarity. clarity to business, clarity to the country at large. and that's what people want. every time there's a survey, you see that they want clarity. and that's why i think it is so important to have a solution. liz: well, now you know you have clarity on the fact that people have the payroll tax back into their paychecks. >> sure. liz: are you seeing any effect on that where people have less money in their pockets, and maybe they're not buying coca-cola as much? >> well, i think generally speaking we still see great opportunities in the united states for our business in the coming decade and continuing on from there. we haven't seen an impact yet. it's too early to tell. liz: okay. >> but i would say this, um, i would say if we

be making a bigger case about taxes, spending, shoot for the mountains and not get dragged down on what he says is clearly democrats and the president's turf. >> we have to focus, steve, i believe republicans -- i've said it time and time again -- on taxes. on cutting spending. on saving entitlements. on saving america from this crushing national debt. it grew $6 trillion under barack obama over the past term. and try to avoid some of these other issues. but i hear bobby jindal's new federalism on crack talking about cutting federal employees by three-quarters, et cetera, et cetera. that ain't going to happen. with the changing demographics and where america is and where it's going over the next 20 every 30 years. >> that's the issue. if you separate it, i think the first part not being the stupid party anymore is sort of a no-brainer. why would you go around insulting important interest groups. >> women. >> yeah, the 47%, all that stuff. but then you get to his policy proposals, and i don't think he's in the mainstream of this country when you talk about 25% of the government buildings, c

finance minister started an initiative on this that this year g8 will look at tax evasion and tax fraud. i think it's enormously important issue, and i think the regulation on the shadow banking system, um, also needs to play a very important role for the russia meeting for the g20. we have quite a lot of regulation for our banks, basel iii comes to mind here. here, actually, we have to be vigilant that the lending capacity that is to boost, after all, economic growth doesn't get too contained, too limited, and i can only hope and join our partners in the united states to introdiscuss deuce this -- introduce this as well, otherwise a new imbalance here. through better regulation of banks, the capital that they need to the capital reserves that they need to have, we also see moral hazard in the sense that people increasingly seem to fly into the shadows of shadow banking. we were at one in saying when we agreed this at the g20 and the thought that every financial instrument, um, every financial be product, every financial market needs to be placed in regulation. we are very far from that. i

the money that you need toward all of this. and i'd like to get your take on the tax structure that is most favorable to getting people to be as generous as they can. what could you tell our viewers in terms of what government policy may be able to do to actually encourage more giving and how it can hurt? >> well, the tax deductibility of charitable giving certainly has been a positive factor in why the u.s. is the most generous. people give about 2% of their incomes and that's true it's not disproportionately the richest. across the board americans are quite generous. the estate tax which lets your charitable giving not be taxed is clearly a very positive encouragement to look at giving. i'd say that even more than the taxes, though, the fact that there's more examples of people where -- so everyone is asking themselves, you know, could i be giving you something, the fact that they hear the impact is very strong, i think the kind of social movement is even more, but the tax structure helps. >> what continuing investment is needed at this point? in other words who are the biggest stakeholde

to be exactly the one that anyone wants, that show that america can make decisions. it set a more effective tax system. it reduced tax uncertainty going forward. i think we could have a booming environment. i may be wrong. that's my own personal belief. if we have a grand bargain, americans take off. the rest of the world needs us to be strong. europe still has its issues and it will for a couple of years. so i think it's important that america kind of take the lead here. i'm hoping in congress, that's what they do. >> what does your gut tell you about all of this money moving into stocks recently? we had a fantastic year in 2013. do you think this is sustainable? >> yeah, the economy grows, it's sustainable. and i think buy american company is pretty good prices. these are world class companies. not just america, european and japanese and chinese companies, but you are still buying them at fairly good prices. the return is not that good. i'm comfortable owning stocks right now. >> my thanks to jamie dimon. >>> the state of business, the state of investors and the state of europe is all part of

and wondered whether there was selling for tax reasons and things of that nature and the people i have spoken to this morning, who do manage money, say the same. all right. let's watch it today. let it weed out and then perhaps revisit it in a few days. >> a couple of dividend. you talked about how that could help, maybe they actually go in and do a buy back of monstrous proportions. >> that could be around the corner. their next meeting, board meeting, is february, when they initiated the dividend f that's catalyst that's a catalyst. isn't it sad to think this was once the go go growth company and now looking the a possible dividend or buy back as the next catalyst for the shares? my how things have changed. >> that requires a management that thinks there's something wrong with the stock. requires a management to hit the stock, maybe they are, maybe they are not. >> buy back or a dividend, acknowledgments? >> so clear the stock was blowing up during the conference call. very clear, but the company was talking about good product, good product. >> companies don't want to acknowledge they are n
. so more invasionive in terms of taxes, which clearly is happening. and less alienled on whgned on about it. should government tax harder or should spending be cut harder? not only is there no agreement, but the democrats now are saying, listen, forget the debt ceiling. let's get rid of that silly little thing. but do we actually need a budget? >> so we're learning that we may finally get a budget for the first time in what, three years? significant, though, because these are just templates. >> i great, they are templates. but letting go at a time when the debt is compounding is worrying. however, having said that, you can get worried about that as a market participant, but as long as the federal reserve has open ended quantitative easing, nothing is going to happen from the long end. >> from a market point of view, we were talking about allen capper about this last hour. but from a market point of view, the best outcome is something that lowers the long-term debt outcome. but we keep get ago worsening of the long-term debt profile and a hit to the near term. that is a mix that
reforms, they're talking about tax reforms, as well. this will be a multi layered process and hopefully they'll be in power long enough to deliver some of those changes. i think the market was expecting for the bank of japan to come in .deliver everything that was going to solve all of japan's problems after decades of recession, then they were probably misguided. but for the moment, the reaction we're getting from people who were watching japan is they probably took as many steps as they could today to try and address this decision. >> kaori, stay with us. ed, welcome. you just heard a little bit of the back and forth. what's your own opinion here on what the boj has or hasn't delivered? >> good morning. thanks very much for having me on the show. my opinion is i completely agree with everything kaori said. even more than that, i would say to the viewing audience, look, this is the cramer moment for japan where you bring out the bells and the whistles and you toot the horn and you tweet and you pound the table and you run around the room saying buy, buy, buy. the framework is now in pl
